    Seem to be a subsidiary of Osram.

    Seller warranty is 12 months, and lists manufacturer warranty as Osram?

    I'm afraid I don't know. Lunex Technology is listed as a lighting manufacturer so may be making these themselves or buying them in. There does not seem to be an Osram equivalent. The company does not seem to have much in the way of assets as of 2015.

    I Asked Osram about their XENARC NIGHT BREAKER UNLIMITED Xenon headlight lamps as there were 4350k and 6000k versions for sale. They said we don't make 6000K ones and these will be counterfeits.

    Have a look at the results here: http://www.autobild.de/artikel/xenon...t-2822873.html

    Not one no-name bulb was good. I think you get what you pay for here. Modern bulbs are precision equipment and even poor quality control of a good design can result in a significantly weaker product. Osram and Philips seem to be consistently good, even if they also drop the ball occasionally.

    What do you stick in yours...

    (I'm talking about the brand, and your car - get your mind out of the gutter )

    Mine still has the originals but these look interesting: XENARC NIGHT BREAKER UNLIMITED Xenon headlight lamps.

    These would be my alternatives:
    OSRAM D1S OEM Xenarc Model 66140
    PHILIPS D1S 85410 XenStart Model 9285 141 294
    PHILIPS D1S XtremeVision gen2 Model 85415XV2

    Hi all.
    Thomas i would stick to the standard Osram or Philips bulbs and get a pair if you are sure it is the bulb have you tried changing it with the other one on the other side just to be sure it is that rather than a ballast problem.

    Dipped beam and sidelights are different light sources, I suggest you look for something common to both. Halfords D1S lamps are fine I bought one last November and it fixed the problem I had.

    It turns out that my lights are fine, just one of the side lights needs replacing. I'm happy, because they're cheap.
